Public evening lecture by László F. Földényi (essayist, art theorist and literary critic, Budapest) as part of the lecture series "Talking about Friedrich"
in the Caspar David Friedrich anniversary year 2024
Wanderer above the sea of fog. The eternal homesickness that overcomes the man who has scaled a towering rock condemns him to an unresolvable loneliness. From the unquenchable longing to find a home, he simultaneously creates new strength - the desire for the impossible.
In two books on Caspar David Friedrich, László Földényi has reflected a great deal on the painter's wanderings. In Greifswald, he will present an updated version.
Moderator: Dr. Christian Suhm
The lecture series "Talking about Friedrich" sheds light on various facets of the painter and man Caspar David Friedrich as well as aspects of his time and the Romantic era. The topics range from historical backgrounds and questions of natural philosophy to individual motifs and aspects of painting technique. The series will also provide insights into the exhibition projects in Hamburg, Berlin and Dresden. Jointly planned and organized by the Jubilee Office of the University and Hanseatic City of Greifswald, the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg, the Caspar David Friedrich Institute of the University of Greifswald, the Caspar David Friedrich Society and the Pomeranian State Museum, the lectures are aimed at both experts and interested visitors. The lectures take place regularly on Tuesdays or Wednesdays in the last week of each month at various locations. Please refer to the calendar of events for details of the individual dates.
